Last week went pretty well, menu plan-wise. We didn’t follow the plan exactly, but it was pretty close. I made something different than what was planned two nights, and it turned out that I didn’t have leftovers for Friday, so I went out with a friend instead. Of course, I did post my plan late, so I knew what I was working with for the beginning of the week, but it was still a good week.
This week we are settling into the school year routine, and I feel almost like I can handle life again. Here look, it is actually Monday when I am posting my menu plan Monday post. I did a big shopping trip to Costco, too, so we have plenty of food–thank goodness for the freezer I bought last month. I’ve only had it about a month and I already can’t imagine how I managed without it!
This week is not too crazy, unless I am forgetting something, ;). I have an event to attend during the workday that is near my house tomorrow, so I will work from home an extra day. That always helps with getting things done, especially now that I am taking a pottery class on Tuesday evenings. I don’t think I have anything else to do in the evenings this week besides that class, though–nothing that will take me out of the house, at least. There are always plenty of things to be done.
Sunday: Takeout at a friend’s house
Monday: Sirloin steak with shrimp scampi, roasted green beans and mushrooms, steamed broccoli
Tuesday: Bratwurst, spinach salad
Wednesday: Garlic Pork Roast in the slow cooker, sauteed spinach, buttered broccoli, applesauce for kids
Thursday: Bacon cheeseburger meatloaf, buttered broccoli
Friday: Pizza–meatza for me, chickpea flour crust for kids
